On February 4th, 2015, Oscar award-winner, filmmaker, and screenwriter Scott Z. Burns revealed new answers to age-old questions of the craft. Jamie McIntyre, a seasoned journalist with a career that spans four decades, also joined the session to reveal the challenges of reporting factual stories, when information can be easily taken out of context.
